In this conversation, Luis von Ahn breaks down how he's been able to conceptualize and execute multiple crowdsourcing projects – from reCAPTCHA to Duolingo. Ahn shares how crowdsourcing is more than a group of people interested in the same cause, it’s a way to tap skills – and scale – that you don’t have. And when it works, it can be the rocket fuel that launches you to scale further than you could have ever imagined.

This interview became the Masters of Scale episode “A master class in crowdsourcing.” Our recommendation: Listen to the episode first. Then enjoy the complete original interview, with its previously unheard material – including our signature Lightning Round.
